And of course there are endless variations of the basic scone recipe, so we're not likely to get bored of them! Here are a few favorite recipes from our archives:
• Fresh Cranberry Scones - We've also made these with dried cranberries that we've plumped in orange juice for a few minutes. You could also use any other fresh fruit!
• Parmesan Chive Scones - These can be made with any kind combination of hard cheese and fresh herb
• Carrot Rosemary Scones - An unlikely combination, but so good!
Individual baked scones can be wrapped in plastic and frozen for a few weeks. We take one out while we're making coffee, and it's usually thawed by the time we're ready to eat it. A pass through a toaster oven or zap in the microwave, and it's like the scone just came out of the oven!
